Curtis Stone's fettucine bolognaise recipe

- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 carrots, finely chopped

- 350g fettucine pasta
- 1 cup fresh basil leaves, finely chopped salt and pepper
In a pan heat olive oil and add beef mince. Break up lumps and brown (approx. 5 minutes)
Add onion, carrots, garlic and mushrooms. Saute for 2 mins.
Add tomatoes and simmer for 30 minutes.
Cook pasta as directed and toss through bolognaise.
Stir in fresh basil.
I was very doubtful when I saw this recipe but I was pleasantly surprised. The mushrooms seem to give it a really nice depth of flavour and the basil is a great fresh flavour.
- I roasted a punnet of halved cherry tomatoes for 10 mins and stirred them through at the end and gave it a shower of freshly grated parmesan cheese. It's great served with homemade garlic bread and a fresh salad.
